The Buyer’s Guide for Best Android Tablets In 2017

Nowadays apart from the cost there are many things to consider before buying a Tablet. Because the Tablets come in various sizes, performance, quality and quantity (storage). In the `above ranking we have ranked up the Android Tablets which are available until May 2017, there are many more Tablets to been release this year. Now let’s see one by one.

What Size to buy For Best Android Tablets In 2017?

There are Tablets out there almost in all the sizes within 7-11 inches Display, some are above 11 inches too. For most of you, you will find the comfort zone between 8-10 inch, as these tabs are generally lite, portable and usable. Mainly look for the tab which settles in your bag, when you buy a large one you face many struggles on caring it. The large tabs are way too heavy, when the tab becomes too heavy you feel hard to handle it for long time. So selecting a Tablet around 450g is a good idea. To concern, if you want to protect your Tablet with a case, it also adds some weight to the Tablet. But anyway if you are using the tablet with a desk or on your lap the weight doesn’t metter.

What kind of Storage to select For Best Android Tablets In 2017?

Always the bigger is better, especially when it comes to the storage you should choose with a minimum of 16 GB of internal Storage. As these days many (not all) Tablets comes with a Micro SD slot it is easier for you to update the storage whenever you want. If not my opinion is to buy the larger Storage one that you can afford. Remember, if the box says the Tablet is 16 GB that is a total amount, the usable amount is quite less than that. Also you have to check whether your Tablet allows you to install Apps in to your SD card, because not all tablets does this.

Screen For Best Android Tablets In 2017

These days, tablets are built in with good screen quality, but still some are poor with the screen. When you chose one look for something with a AMOLED or IPS capacitive Display and definitely avoid the screens with TN, these TN screens have a very poor built quality.

How to know the Screen quality For Best Android Tablets In 2017

Look for the resolution of the screen, always the higher is the better, but the more important thing is the Pixel Density. Aim for at least 250ppi (Pixel Per Inch) or higher, as this tells how sharp your screen is.


Features To Look For

Generally all the Tablets are packed with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and some are with a SIM slot too. If you always use your Tablet in Wi-Fi range it doesn’t matter of the SIM slot, if not it’s worth it, especially if you travel with your Tablet. What else more you want, for many people a useful thing is video output, if the Tablet is compatible with HDMI, that’s worth it to stream something on a big screen. Also the GPS will help you with Navigation, as not all the Tabs comes with this feature, you have to find for the one
